Oxford Dictionary couldn’t help but get in on the puff-puff-pass this year with their Word of the Year selection.
According to Oxford, the use of the word “vape”, which can be used as both a word or a noun, has doubled in 2014 (from the previous year), and its rampant use could no longer be ignored.
“A gap emerged in the lexicon, as a word was needed to describe this activity, and distinguish it from ‘smoking,’” Oxford said, failing at trying to sound cool. “The word ‘vape’ arose to fill this gap, and it has proliferated along with the habit.”
Its new definition will be two-fold, with verb being described as “to inhale and exhale the vapour produced by an electronic cigarette or similar device” and the noun as the actual device used to smoke.
Sorry Oxford, it was a good try but you still can’t sit with us.
